Happy New Year to all our lovely friends and loyal customers, and good riddance to 2020! We're not out of the woods yet though sadly and are disappointed and frustrated to have to close until further notice, due to Tier 3 restrictions in Devon on hospitality venues. Not the start to the new year we'd hoped for, but not entirely unexpected. We'll do our bit to keep everyone safe and stay at home for the duration. The team are champing at the bit to open up again and will do so as soon as we are allowed! We look forward to seeing you all again soon...! We're taking bookings from February onwards at the moment, in the hope we will be up and running by then!
  • When we do reopen, the restrictions will probably be similar to those in place late last year... so we've kept all the details of how we'll be operating on our website for now, and update it as things change!
  • TIER 2 RESTRICTIONS: No mixing households/support bubbles indoors - please ensure your booking conforms to this, and tell us if you need to cancel or amend. If you're brave enough to sit outside in the garden, up to 6 people from different households can sit together outside. Business meetings over lunch or dinner are only permitted if they are essential and unavoidable, and remain within guidelines. Alcohol cannot be served unless you are dining with us. Coffees, teas and soft drinks are available with or without food all day! Last orders for drinks, coffees and desserts taken at 10pm, with time allowed to finish your meal and drinks and toddle home in a leisurely fashion! We also serve beers, drinks, and mulled wine to take away, as well as certain dishes from our daily menu, but these must be ordered by phone on 01392270222 then paid for and collected at the bar.
  • TEMPORARY EARLIER EVENING SERVICE and CLOSING TIME Kitchen open 12-2.15pm and 6pm-9pm, Bar open til 10pm. Due to the disappointing gov't requirement for us to to stop serving at 10pm, we will open our kitchen earlier than normal for the time being, taking orders from 6pm until 8.45pm. Early evening bookings will be offered a table for 2hrs to allow second sittings and we truly appreciate your understanding in this. The bar will close at 10pm and customers will be politely asked to settle up and leave once they have finished their meals and drinks, but by 11pm at the latest. We wish it wasn't so, but we do have to tow the line!
  • KEEPING EVERYONE SAFE Please bear in mind there will be a few changes in the way we run the show, simply to keep our team and our customers safe by minimising the risk of transmission of Covid-19. Let me reassure you that we have numerous measures in place to facilitate social distancing, and we'd very much appreciate you respecting our new policies. For example, the front door to the wine bar will be for ENTRY only, and customers will be asked to EXIT via the garden entrance, although the back door remains a two-way thoroughfare, so please just check the mirrors for anyone coming the opposite way and respectfully stand aside as necessary. Please ensure you use the sanitising station by each door on arrival, and as often as you feel necessary during your visit. We can only offer table service inside currently, rather than bar service. Lunch and dinner bookings are strongly advised while we have reduced capacity. We only take bookings for diners. Once Tier 2 restrictions are eased accordingly, drinkers will be very welcome inside as long as table space allows, or of course in the gardens. Brr!
  • Customers are required to wear a mask inside when not seated at their table, ie. on arrival, when leaving, and for going to the loo or standing near the bar etc. Thank you in advance for adhering to this request. Our staff will also be wearing masks of course!
  • Customers must provide a name and contact number when visiting Rendezvous, either using the QR code check-in, the NHS tracing app, or by old-school pen and paper at the bar!
  • Please help us by maintaining a sensible social distance from our staff and other customers, even after a drink or two(!), and by paying contactless or by card where possible.
  • Don't forget to sanitise on arrival... and whenever you feel appropriate during your visit. 
  • Maximum group/table size 6 people inside and out. No split tables. Only one household under Tier 2 restrictions.
  • Table service only, indoors. All drinkers and diners must be seated at a table or a sofa, no upright drinking or propping up the bar allowed these days. In fact no horizontal drinking either come to think of it...!! How terribly boring!
  • Due to new government restrictions, regrettably we cannot serve customers looking for drinks only without substantial food. We'd love for you to stay but sadly our wings are being clipped temporarily!
